Botox treatment is often used for cosmetic applications, including reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be a treatment option for certain medical conditions, such as sweating or muscle spasms. At Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care, we can determine a treatment plan for your case to help you find relief.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a popular injectable treatment that uses the botulinum toxin to paralyze muscles. It is most often used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, including frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. This can lead to a more youthful appearance.
Botox has minimal downtime, lasts between 3-4 months, and is customizable to the results you want to achieve. At Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care, we first complete a consultation to discuss the results you want to achieve. This allows us to determine the best treatment plan and provide direction on how to maintain the results of your treatment for as long as possible.
What Medical Conditions Can You Treat With Botox?
Botox blocks chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. The treatment is safe, minimally invasive, and usually well-tolerated. Botox can help treat and manage the following medical conditions:
Botox can help treat muscle spasms in the face and neck. Cervical dystonia, or neck spasms, can cause the neck muscles to contract uncontrollably. This can cause the head to twist into an uncomfortable position. Botox can treat other types of irregular contractions as well, such as eyelid spasms. When used regularly, Botox injections may be able to alleviate spasms and their associated symptoms.
Botox can be used to reduce or prevent chronic migraines in adults. The treatment is mainly used for people who experience headaches 15 or more days a month. By injecting Botox into specific head and neck muscles every three months, you may be able to reduce the severity and frequency of your migraines.
In many cases, a lazy eye is caused by an imbalance in the muscles that are responsible for eye movement. Botox can help align the position of the eyes by preventing these muscles from moving out of place.
Excessive sweating is characterized by hyperhidrosis, a condition where a person is not moving or performing strenuous activities. Botox can alleviate excessive sweating by blocking nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands. This can provide relief from sweating in areas like the underarms, upper lip, and palms.
